Jets rumors: Matt Simms named starting quarterback for preseason finale
Simms played in the Snoopy Bowl versus the New York Giants and led the Jets to an all-important 24-21 overtime win in the final minutes, completing 6 of 10 passes for 120 yards and a touchdown. Simms only came in after Mark Sanchez was injured on a hit by Marvin Austin during the fourth quarter.
Simms is the third quarterback to start in a preseason game this year for the Jets. Sanchez started the first two contests before head coach Rex Ryan gave Geno Smith an opportunity to take the starting job in the Giants game.
The quarterback situation has been up in the air throughout the summer, with no clear favorite established. Both Smith and Sanchez has had first-team reps but neither has been overly impressive. Simms and Greg McElroy are fighting for the third spot on the depth chart.
